Wisdom teeth can erupt in a variety of position. Depending on these positions, difficulty might arise during the removal of wisdom teeth. Some wisdom teeth may erupt right behind the second molar causing toothache due to tooth decay. It can also cause gum disease and bone loss. In some cases wisdom teeth may cause the adjacent teeth to collapse and a wisdom teeth removal will be required by the dentist.
